Well we have finished with the Old Testament and began the New Testament this week.

An Angel Speaks to Mary

The girls had fun tracing their hands and feet to make this angel craft.  You can find the directions for it here at DTLK.










Jesus is Born


Big Ladybug and I made a baby Jesus craft.  I got the idea from Danielle's Place.  It is a “members only” craft, and I am not, so we just made our own version.



When Jesus was a Boy

But she did enjoy some books and a video.

She also had fun transplanting them into some pots for our upcoming science experiments.

  1. I truly love your blog. The drawings are great and love the activities. I was wondering if you remember how she made the water look like that in her Baptism of Jesus pic?? I hope you keep on blogging, it's especially great for those of us who are visual learners. Thank you for sharing. Leena
